Well the parts for the new quad got ordered today. A new cow is about to join the SETI farm next week.


I used to be a cruncher like you, then I took an arrow to the knee.

Well the old man can still build a PC! The quad fired right up and is installing Ubuntu 7.10 right now. Might be crunching before the night is over.

And to think I still have a Vigor Monsoon II TEC cooled B3 Q6600 to build yet(Oh bother), Of course putting It into Seti won't happen for a bit as I'm delaying that for a while. Not that I couldn't I just need the extra cash until 2010.

One or two machines crunching on idle: casual user.
10 machines crunching full time: interested user.
Buying all the latest hardware and o/cing it beyond belief (msattler, I'm looking at you!): hardcore user.
Running it on every machine you have permission to: healthy obsession.
Running it on every machine you don't have permission to: unhealthy obsession.

My guess will be that it is the one who is paying the power bill out of his own pocket ;) ??

Seriously, how much power does Your 8 machines toll Your power bill?

No offence intended..

I have 2 hosts running only, although I could start a couple of machines more, but my budget says stop. :(

Happy crunching :)
